(LOUD & PROUD RECORDS)

The Winery Dogs

One of the most highly anticipated releases of 2013, the self-titled debut of the supergroup known as the Winery Dogs has been unleashed. Richie Kotzen, Billy Sheehan and Mike Portnoy have joined forces to create one powerful album. When musicians of this magnitude get together the outcome will is nothing short of mind blowing! The result being a album that has soulful classic rock vibe that rock and groove you in way unimaginable. Richie Kotzen’ s vocals are superb. I’ve always been a fan of his work and what he’s done here, along with his amazing guitar work, just blew me away. Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan are a rhythm section sent from the gods. Right off the bat with the first two tracks , “Elevate” and “Desire”, the trio show they aren’t messing around. Groove laden rockers that go for the throat. Speaking of groove, “We Are One”, is just what the doctor ordered. The hook on the song along is worth getting your hands on this album. Even when the trio downshift on, “You Saved Me”, they sound amazing. 13 tracks total, all are amazing. So, was the waiting and all the hype worth it? After one listen, I would say, with no hesitation, YES! The Winery Dogs have recorded a very strong debut, I can only imagine what they come up with next, without a doubt one of the best releases this year hands down!

Highly Recommended
